Nike unveiled the commercial, titled “Better: Mamba Forever.” It is beautiful, nothing short of a masterpiece. I’ll let the work speak for itself:

Kobe taught us to be better.

“You wake up every single day to get better today than you were yesterday.”

Better dreamer. Better waker. Better stretcher. Better walker. Better talker. Better walking the walk and talking the talk. Better blocker. Better sprinter. Better loser. Better winner. Just be better.

“Do the simple stuff right.”

Better form. Focus. Better friend. Better fighter. Better rider. Better eater. Better leader. Better generation. Better nation. Just be better. Can you do that?

Better player. Better shooter. Better scorer. Better G.O.A.T. Better G.O.A.T. Better mentor. Better minor. Major. Mover. Shaker. Better skater. Better artist. Better teacher. Better preacher. Better believer. Better first. Better future. Better hero. Better hero. Better mother. Better father, better father, better father, better father, better father. Better me. Better you. Better us.

“Mamba out.”

Better… forever.

There is a fine line between fishing and doing nothing. We would like to think that we’re fishing, but the truth is we don’t have the line.
